That’s got to be a political asset

This is a story about Donald Trump campaigning with his wife and children. The caption at the bottom of the picture reads:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, middle, speaks near his wife, Melania, left, son Baron, daughter Ivanka, second from right, and daughter Tiffany during a campaign event at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2015, in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Having watched both the press and the polls suggest that Mrs Trudeau was a reason for Justin’s success, shows again how different North American politics is from everyone else’s. Here, however, is the bit at the end of the story that Trump must have repeated a dozen times for the journalist even to have mentioned it:

Trump denounced the media for focusing on the protesters rather than his popularity at campaign appearances.

“Seventy percent of those people back there are absolutely total scum,” Trump said Tuesday, gesturing to the press area at the back of the arena, getting a roar and applause from the crowd.

You really do have to wonder why they were applauding.
